Rise and Shine Queensland


Free fun community events


We made it through the severe weather that affected Queensland earlier this year, so now it’s time to have some fun and celebrate our great community spirit as the Rise and Shine Queensland Tour hits the road.

This series of free community events will feature a range of family activities, a free BBQ and live entertainment program with some of Australia’s favourite performers.

Bring your picnic rug, gather up your family and friends and come out for a great day of entertainment!

Visit the Queensland Goverment website for further information.


The Rise and Shine Queensland tour is an initiative of the Queensland Government and the Queensland Music Festival to bring activities and entertainment to regions affected by severe weather events earlier this year.

Proudly supported by ABC Local Radio.
